Tossing Salt Presents:
Obama, Trump, Starbucks and More
May 27, 2018
I haven’t gotten political in quite a while. And I’m sure that most of you loyal readers are thankful for that, but what the heck. All good things must come to an end and thus, my silence about the world of politics is doing just that. No local politics since my job won’t allow it and this is too small a town to get the wrong people mad, but the national stuff is generally okay. Well, maybe some local politics. Kersey For Sheriff… 2018! And now, on to the rest of it. The questions come from the Facebook pages of a group called “Opposing Views”. The answers and opinions that follow are all mine and mine alone. Let’s get busy and do this…
Some Americans think we should take the words “under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance. What do you think: Should the words stay?
We’re a nation that was founded in part as a haven for religious freedom and God was and is a big part of that. The words have been there and should remain there. If someone doesn’t like it, that’s their problem. Get over it. This is one nation, under God and I have no problems with acknowledging that.
Atheist lawyer Michael Newdow says the words “In God We Trust” are offensive, so he’s suing to get them removed from our money. Do you think the words should stay or be removed?
Leave the words as they are. This guy is offended, but who the hell cares. If he doesn’t like what it says on his money, then don’t use money. Stick with credit cards and send all the cash to me. I have no problems with it at all. This guy is a stupid idiot who just needs to grow up, shut up and go back to his little safe place and play with his slinky for a while and leave the rest of us alone. ‘Nuff said!
Would you vote for Michelle Obama if she ran for president one day?
No, I don’t think so. She’s not qualified, having never held a political office or run a business or done anything really that matters so why would I waste my vote on someone like her. I want someone with a history of success and purpose and not a tranny who wants to put everyone on a diet, but has gained almost sixty plus pounds since leaving Washington. If I want a racist militant woman in the White House, I’ll go with Oprah first. At least she runs a multi-billion dollar business. Michelle though? I don’t think so.
Yes or no: Will Obama go down in history as a great president?
Comedian Chelsea Handler says she dreams of a day when Trump is removed from office in handcuffs. Do you feel the same way?
Chelsea Handler is an idiot and brain dead buffoon. Why does she hate Trump so badly? She probably couldn’t even give a legit reason except for that it’s the “cool thing to do” and she’s trying to appease her equally brain-dead fan base and trying to stay relevent. It’s not working. Trump may be an egomaniac and obnoxious, but he’s been an effective and good President so far and deserves the opportunity to continue to do what needs to be done to make America great again. The only laws that seem to have been broken were by the previous Administration and their allies, not Trump. Chelsea Handler needs to just go suck a… shut up. Stupid idiot!
Dozens of states across America have decided to make animal abuse a felony. Do you support this?
Absolutely. I have no use for anyone who hurts animals or children and whatever it takes to punish these ass-clowns, so be it… PERIOD!
Thoughts on the decision by Starbucks about changing their policies to that people don’t have to be paying customers to use restroom or remain in their businesses.
A situation happened in one restaurant and Starbucks went crazy and lost their mind. This will not help their business or make money for their investors, but instead will create chaos and confusion and cause far more problems than it could ever possibly solve. Real customers, the ones who buy the products and pay the bills, are being cast to the side so that the homeless, the riff raff and the teenagers looking for a place to “chill”, won’t have their feelings hurt and have a place to come crash. The proper resolution to all of this was to deal with the one situation, one employee that screwed up and move on. Instead, Starbucks decided to over-react, change the rules for everyone and put the exclamation point on that they haven’t got a clue about real life and dealing with the public, instead preferring to live in their dream world of universal harmony and crumpets to go with that over-priced cup of mud-water. This will not bode well or work out well in the end. Mark my words on that because Dougie knows.
And there you go. That’s all for now. Thanks for reading. Comments and thoughts are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, VOTE KERSEY FOR SHERIFF! And vote Pedro for everything else. Have a great one.
